of the societal issue of child abuse. >> cnn's susan candiotti is joining us now. louis freeh led this study. it was very, very bitter and damming. >> reporter: it was, wolf. right out of the gate, louis freeh made it clear that children were victimized because four top penn state officials did nothing to stop jerry sandusky. and named names including a man's name synonymous with penn state university, the late coach joe paterno. from the moment jerry sandusky was marched before the public branded a predatory pedophile, a troubling question lingered, what did those at penn state university do to stop him? now the public has an answer. >> our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of sandusky's child victims by the most senior leaders at penn state. >> reporter: louis freeh, hired by the university to investigate its role in the jerry sandusky scandal delivered a scathing 267-page report. 430 interviews, 3.5 million pieces of evidence adding up to one major finding about what they did with evidence of child rape. >> the most powerful people in pe

, and as a commercial hub, it is a crucial city in the country's 16-month conflict. we are joined by cnn anchor hala gorani, and you can give us a better idea of how significant it would be to take control of a aleppo? >> well, it is extremely significant and probably as significant as damascus, which is the administrative capital of syria, but aleppo is the economic beating heart of the country. it is diverse and has more christians than damascus does. the rebels are in much closer to the center than they have ever been and that is what is important and interesting of what is going on and significant. you showed a google map with the citadel which is the 13th century medieval fort, and the rebels have reached the center of the old city which is one neighborhood there, and whether or not they keep the territory is another question, because now what everyone is bracing for is for the regular syrian army to come in, and we have heard of reports of fighter jets pounding the rebel strongholds, and now we might hear street to street battlesles betwethe regular syr army, and it will be bloody. >> it is fu

. >> reporter: but finally he gave cnn the news. >> the supreme court is the final word, right? the highest court in the land? they said it was a tax, didn't they? so it's a tax. that's what they say it is. >> reporter: the main reason the already cautious romney was especially careful here is because the gop message on the mandate is already muddled. earlier this week a top romney advisor said the candidate did not think the insurance mandate is a tax but rather a penalty. what democrats call it. >> the governor believes what we put in place in massachusetts was a penalty. and he disagrees with the court's ruling that the mandate was a tax. >> reporter: that enfuruated republicans in washington for imposing what they call the biggest tax in american history. democrats here shadowing romney's event didn't miss a beat. >> i think people see the president as being a strong leader standing up for his principles and moving forward. we'll let mitt romney argue with himself. >> reporter: romney's news came during a brief bit of independence day action in an otherwise quiet week with his family at

the term obama care. we at cnn use the term the president's health care law instead of commenting to an audience that is very friendly to the audience and say you would repeal it is almost sort of inviting a confrontation. now, if you go on social media right now, you will see that there are a lot of republicans out there applauding mitt romney for coming into this audience and saying what he will do as president of the united states and this message may be designed not just for the naacp but to go out across the country because it's being carried live and go to those independent sectors of independent areas, battleground states and it's interesting to see the different takes on what happened here today, but no question about it, this was a very negative reaction to what mitt romney had to say here this morning. >> and it will be interesting to hear, jim, what romney thought about the reception there, what his own camp -- how they might spend this appearance by mitt romney there in houston. jim, thank you so much. let's discuss this further, however, with gop strategists and cnn c
organizations including cnn will petition to court to get them unsealed so we can get a better look at what is going on. >> a lot coming forward about his mental status, his mental health. we had many conversations about whether he was suffering from mental illness. we're learning more about the psychiatrist he was seeing. what more do we know about the parcel that holmes had mailed his psychiatrist and could we learn more about this? >> last monday, three days after the shooting at a mail room in the university of colorado, this package arrived containing a notebook addressed to a psychiatrist holmes was seeing. that much we know. the defense is saying, look, this is privileged communications between a doctor and patient. we want to have that. the judge will decide on that part of this today. it tells us that he was seeing a psychiatrist, but it doesn't tell us how long he was seeing her or why he was seeing her. we still have so many more questions about that and what degree of mental health care he may have been getting looding up to this, and the big question, was there any kind of fore
is joining me, a former new york prosecutor and criminal trial lawyer and cnn contributor. boy, lots to talk about here, paul. >> lots. >> why don't we -- do you think this case hinges right now on the question of his sanity? >> oh, it most definitely does because let's face it, the evidence against him is overwhelming. there's, you know, a theater full of witnesses, and he's caught by the police, and they have evidence about the apartment being wired, bombs set up. you know, factually, i think it's not hard to prove he committed this act. the only real issue is was he sane? and we'll see that today. we'll probably hear talk about whether he's even competent to stand trial. that's the first issue that you have to face in court. >> okay. well, let's talk about his psychiatric treatment and how this could play a factor in the trial. we were talking a lot in the past couple weeks about his mental state. could he be suffering from mental illness. there's a lot of reporting that has been done outside of cnn about that, and his psychiatrist. what do you find interesting, what are you paying attent
will certainly be the star of the show. but cnn has learned that bill clinton, the former president, will also have a very, very prominent role. let's go straight to white house correspondent brianna keilar. the two men, as a lot of us remember, they haven't always had the closest relationship, have they? >> no, wolf. during the height of the last go-round, the democratic primaries where you saw barack obama and hillary clinton duking it out in 2007 and 2008, sources tell cnn former president bill clinton felt very bitterly towards president obama because he felt his wife had been mistreated. now some of the wounds did heal after the election when you saw president obama -- then president-elect obama appointing secretary clinton as his secretary of state. and now you have a situation where bill clinton is one of his most visible surrogates. >> when bill clinton took the stage at the democratic convention in 2008, the crowd went wild. ♪ at first they wouldn't even let him start talking. >> i am honored to be here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. please. >> four years ago clinton
